The teacher who handles the classes for the Gifted program at my children's school gave us the information about the Doodle4Google contest that is being held every year. This is my daughter's first year in the Gifted program so she jumped on the opportunity to enter the said contest. This year's theme is "If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place..."
One talented young artist (grades K-12) will see her/his artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.
My daughter was very excited upon reading the prize for the school. She does not even care about the individual prize but she wants to win it for the school. It makes me proud of our little girl because she wants to help her school.
The world would be a much better place if we could stop cancer from taking so many lives each year. Technology has made it easier to detect and treat but we still have a long way to go. One life lost is one too many.
Her entry was inspired of the fact that my husband's family have lost lives of love ones from cancer-related diseases. She's sad that she did not get to meet her grandmother (my husband's Mom and her Uncle, my husband's brother).
Please help my daughter realize her dream of helping her school by hopefully winning this contest. It is a shot in the dark but with your help, it is possible. The 50 designs will be displayed at Google's website for the public to cast their votes. The above design is my daughter's entry, she is representing the State of West Virginia.
THANK YOU all so much for casting your votes!
